Miss Bertie, Miss Mary and Miss Dee, Volunteering No Matter What

Read and listen to a story about Miss Bertie, Miss Mary and Miss Dee as part of a series honoring the individuals who make a difference in people’s lives: 90.5 WESA Celebrates People Making a Difference.

They may all be 80-something, but Miss Bertie, Miss Mary and Miss Dee certainly are not resting on their laurels.  

That’s because every Tuesday morning for the past decade, rain or shine, sleet or snow, you’ll see Miss Bertie, Miss Mary and Miss Dee volunteering at the North Side Ministry Food Pantry, sometimes even a few times a week .

These steadfast volunteers have rarely missed a day in 10 years, even during this brutal Pittsburgh winter.
